    Need to remove a snapshot in VMware Player? To remove snapshots in VMware Player, you have to install VMware Workstation (Which you can do as a trial). This is because VMware Player does not support creating or removing snapshots.

    You might be thinking that VMware Player *must* support snapshots, otherwise how did I get snapshots of my VM in VMware Player?! The answer is that you probably took the free upgrade of a trial of VMware Workstation, which allows you to make and delete snapshots, then after the 30 days you would have lost the ability to create and remove snapshots. Alternatively you copied a VM that had existing snapshots. Either way, you can’t remove snapshots in VMware Player.
